Charnwood College Maggie Gilbert has signed early to Lake Region State Junior College in the USA.
The 6ft 2″ Class of 2017 Centre is excited to continue playing basketball in the USA alongside her education where we got to find out more on the whole experience.
“I am extremely happy to have gotten a scholarship in the States for next season and to progress to the next stage. It took a while but with advice from Coach Krumesh Patel it was quite straight forward.”
Gilbert chose LRSC for an array of reasons.
“I picked LRSC because they are known for progressing Forwards as well as good academics and I like their style of play. Also all the coaching staff and players have a very positive attitude”
“I want to thank Krumesh, without him as a coach I wouldn’t of thought it possible for me to play in America. He has definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone and developed me as a player. I want to thank my Mum, for always fully supporting me with everything I do.”
We want to congratulate Maggie on her scholarship and wish her all the success in the USA.
